EUAsiaGrid makes a virtue of diversity

EUAsiaGrid, a two-year project to promote grid awareness in South-East Asia, is entering its final phase. Time to take stock of some of the unique aspects of running such a geographically and culturally diverse grid project, and the opportunities it has created for closer scientific collaboration.

More than half the world lives in Asia.

Even putting aside the two titans of India and China, there are some 600 million inhabitants — 100 million more than the entire EU — in the region commonly referred to as South-East Asia, which stretches nearly twice the width of the continental United States from Burma in the West to Indonesia’s Papua province in the East.

Most of the Asian partners in EUAsiaGrid hark from this region, which has more than its fair share of natural disasters in the form of earthquakes, volcanoes, typhoons and tsunamis, not to mention enduring political tensions.

Despite the challenging circumstances, EUAsiaGrid has managed to make a significant impact in a relatively short time.
